Folk-rock turned synth-pop heroes, Renshaw Davies are a crazy talented duo from New Orleans. They write the best, most haunting type of emo songs; the sad jams that are so catchy they actually make you kind of stoked. Their new single, “If I Can’t Have You” is the perfect example of this. A pulsating drum beat pushes the song forward, while a stream of synths and guitar fragments pull at the heartstrings, and the ridiculously infectious vocals somehow, sneak you into paradise.
Watch the music video for “If I Can’t Have You” below:
Renshaw Davies is John Renshaw (vocals, guitar) and Emily Davies (vocals, synthesizers).
The duo will be playing the Hotel Cafe in Los Angeles on Saturday, July 21st at 9 PM. More information can be found at www.thehotelcafe.com.
